Perfect location to relax and not have to travel too far for a great place to eat, wonderful beaches and true feel you are getting a piece of Portugal .Friendly staff. Great accommodation together with the perfect hosts of Alice and Sergio- which is why we will be returning.

We visited Vila Castelo 2 years in a row and, whilst we haven't visited since 2012, I'm certain we will return one day. The resort itself is very well maintained and the staff are really friendly and welcoming, with a lovely family vibe. Definitely the sort of place people return to year on year. The area of Ferragudo is also... More
